Oh Josey, Josey, Josey......
Your day has come.
It has been too long since we have had an epic CFB bruhaha the likes that the standard SBN CFB site could not comprehend.('cept maybe EDSBS)
Let's face it, Angrydomers - our boys are in the dog days of summer, the NFL is still in a lockout, and the NBA is doing it's damn best to trump the NFL one. So what's left to bust each others' balls about?(Sorry Lisa, BIMB, and the rest of you ladies.) Wimbledon? Pass. NASCAR? Pass. Love?! Well, no. Except maybe IANF. So, we're left with some good old fashioned college football to discuss.
In the coming weeks, as long as Fitz and Von MarriageSmasher allow it, we will cuss and discuss some CFB Preview mags, their outlandish predictions, and why Josey insists that Tech will win a Zombie XII championship before it dissolves in 2012.(That's my call, btw.)
So, without further adieu, we begin with this week's magazine.
After the bump.
